I once killed a slithering real estate agent in my yard, mis-took him for a snake!

She might not have seen a snake, but if you live outside the city or near a lake or stream, your chances of seeing a snake or poiseness snake are likely. By the way, that is anywhere in the U.S.

This comes from someone that grew up in Arkansas, worked in pest control business crawling under thousands of homes, and outdoors man. Personnelly, I have never seen a Rattlesnake in Arkansas in the wild alive. I have seen tons of Copperheads and Cottonmouths, up close. In fact, we have had someone in the business bitten in the past, but he put his hand directly on the snake.

There are lots of websites about snakes in general, in Arkansas, and hold to deal with them available to you. Many of them will explain steps to take to limit your involvement with snakes including in your home.

Here is one as example: Herps of Arkansas: HomePage
I have been told by "old timers" in the area that a Copperhead will generally run (slither?) in the opposite direction if they are confronted by a person. On the other hand, Cottonmouths are notoriously aggressive and will "come after you", especially if you are near the edge of a pond or lake. Again, I don't know this to be accurate information, but I have no intention of finding out, if I can help it.
